Just noticed my last ss shows any comments from AP, i only want the comments returned to AO if they are exactly as they are in the brackets. Otherwise "No Narrative Provided"

e.g. AO14 would be "No Narrative Provided" as well as A015

Thanks

Can you clarify that? That appears to be the opposite of thhe intention of your formula, which is trying to return "No narrative provided" if the cell does match one of the items.

I know! Basically what im looking to achieve is:

If the text in AP matches any of the bracketed options in the IF Staement, return AP, If it doesnt exactly match the bracketed options or is blank, return "No Narrative Provided"

Thanks

Then you need:

=IF(OR(TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="Fidessa Booking instructed, Awaiting Sophis Booking",TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="Re - Allocated to different Source code",TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="No Narrative Provided",TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="Open Investigation",TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="fidessa booking to be made",TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="Corporate Actions Booking Adjustment required",TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="Paris involved in resolution",TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),""))="New break requires investigatation (1 - 3 day)"),TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(AP2,CHAR(160),"")), "No Narrative Provided")

because you have character 160 and trailing spaces in column AP (I guess you copied form the web)

Thanks Rory!

Out of interest, what is Character 160?

Thanks

It's a non-breaking space, I believe.
